173- Improving Longevity at the Cellular Level with Dr. Sandra Kaufmann

By Bryan Carroll CFMP, NTP, FAFS

February 10, 2022

As you age, all of a sudden longevity becomes a topic that you are interested in. When the little aches and pains start to creep in, that's when you really notice things are changing.

What's interesting is how we all age differently. I know people in their 80's with very little pain or health complications. I know people in their 20's who are constantly in excruciating pain. 

Sometimes we are dealt cards out of our control and our bodies pay the price. But in almost every case, there is a way to age gracefully, which is what Dr. Sandra Kaufmann will teach us today.
